Robert, you are a non-observant secular Jew....and I am a former christian who studies Torah . I left the church 20 years ago. I have found my home in the Judaism which you choose not to observe. It was a long journey, but I finally arrived. Look, history is history and many things cannot be denied - anti semitism is alive and well, and so is the hatred of christians and Jews in the middle east. People are scared because if we do not remain vigilant, history has a nasty way of repeating itself. I know people who freak out because Israel refuses to forget the Holocaust... They complain, “ Why do they keep on bringing it up?” Same reason others bring up 9-11.
